Two recovery modes for restoring Mac photos

DoYourData provides two recovery modes for Mac photo recovery. Quick recovery mode scans Mac hard drive quickly and restores Mac photos within a short time. If you can't restore all Mac photos after quick recovery scan, you can try advanced recovery mode which will deeply scan your Mac and find more lost files. It is recommended to try quick recovery mode at first when you are intending to recover Mac photos, because that quick recovery mode takes much shorter time.

Don't save the photos to the drive where you lost them

As mentioned, the photos can be recovered because the photos' disk space is not taken up by new files. So before you recover all the photos you are looking for, you should not write new data to the hard drive where you lost your photos. The recoverable photos which are found by DoYourData should be saved on another hard drive.

Preview the photos before you decide to recover them

After scanning, all the recoverable photos will be listed on the software interface. You can preview the photos to check their quality and detail information. It supports to search a photo by name. If you don't have time to recover photos right now, you can export the scanning result for next/later recovery.
